Upperhill is an international zone in terms of food so if you are staying in Upperhill and want a taste of Africa, come here. The main thing is nyama choma, traditional Kenyan roast meat, best taken with ugali (cornmeal) and vegetables, oh, and beer. And don't expect a glass with that. They have other traditional Kenyan food as well. The... More

This place has mediocre Kenyan food. Stewed chicken or wet fry chicken tasted like home made, skuma or greens were undercooked and bitter, beef stew and Ugali were nothing special. Motura tasted good, but made us sick (diarrhea). The chips/fries were old.

Rich in taste, rich in variety of cuisine. You get everything. I most like the exotic Kenyan dishes the served. New taste though, but was a nice experience.

Visited this place on a Sunday afternoon with a couple of friends. Unless all other places are out of service, please reconsider. The service is terribly slow. The meat is tasty though but be careful with the chicken as they will bring you the previous day's fowl patted down with oil in an attempt to fool you into thinking that... More

The buffet lunch served here on weekdays provides for a good meal for a working person who is in a hurry to rush back to work.

The most prominent description is the one man bands that entertains here, they have a good variety of both secular and gospel. Good meat too, but you must be patient. You have to take care of your valuables when here particularly in the evenings.

Popular joint. Road blocked, rough and muddy. Has good nyama choma, very slow service and a waiter once left with my change. Location is okay and security also average.

This is a good local place to wind down and enjoy local food. Give a typical Kenyan day or night out atmosphere. With Football screens and local music in the air
